Network Scanner is a program designed to scan IP addresses in a local network. It can work with large corporate networks and analyze addresses in a specified range. All computers, web servers and subnets are detected during the scanning process. All of this is displayed in a single hierarchical list to which different filters and sorting parameters can be applied. The list shows the hidden FTP and NetBIOS (Samba) resources. In addition, Network Scanner checks the current status of all devices, pings and access rights to them (read/write). By the way, unlike other network scanners, this does not require administrator privileges to start scanning.
Analysis of the network is carried out in several streams, which allows you to significantly increase the speed of the program, and the resulting list of devices can be exported to popular formats: HTML, XML and TXT. If you wish, you can save not the whole list, but only the specified items and branches.
In addition to performing scanner functions, the program also provides several other important tools. It allows you to remotely manage your computer, operate it in Desktop mode, view the list of running services, use shared folders, turn off remote devices, wake them up from sleep mode, view logs, and so on. All of these functions require appropriate permissions, and remote management requires client side confirmation.
At home, you can use Network Scanner for free. But in the case of operation at the enterprise and for corporate purposes it will be necessary to purchase a license.
